Date Ideas to Rekindle Marriage

There’s no such thing as a perfect marriage. At some point, marriages hit a plateau, especially after the honeymoon phase or when you get too busy with the kids, and you don’t have time for yourself or your spouse anymore. The worst-case scenario is when your marriage hits rock bottom — but on the bright side, when that happens, there’s no other place to go except up. You can try some date ideas to rekindle marriage that once was fun and exciting. Whether it’s inside or outside the house, these dates you set up are easy to follow and tweak according to your preference. Some effort into fixing or adding spice to your marriage will surely save it from extinction.

  1. Plan weekly dates. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution to fixing marriages. You will need a lot of time, effort, and consistency to keep the fire burning continually. Planning weekly dates may seem like a chore when you factor in kids, work, and other time management problems, but the wonderful thing about planning them ahead is you commit to them, and these dates help you not think about your other problems. They become your weekly stress relievers and they help you focus on how to improve your relationship. For a lighter load, agree with your partner to alternately plan the dates. If you want to level up, you can add in a monthly surprise date for extra flare.
  2. Go to your favorite restaurants or try new ones. Going to places you and your partner used to visit is a great opportunity to recall your memories and favorite moments in that place. It may be where you first met each other or had your first date. Trying restaurants you and your partner have never been to is also a good idea if you want to try something new. Who knows? You just might discover a new favorite or a great venue for an important event in the future.
  3. Recreate your favorite memories. Go back in time with your partner by reliving your favorite moments together. Like the previous idea, you can go to your old favorite restaurants or places, but this time, it’s with a twist: make the setting close to your first memory. If the restaurant is no longer around or you live far from it now, you can try decorating your dining room to look like it. Also, try to have the same hair, clothes, or environment at that time. Recreating first dates or favorite memories is great for rekindling marriages because they can remind you why you fell in love with each other in the first place. It’s also a chance to enjoy the same experience as before or fix what went wrong the first time and form a new, better memory with your partner.
  4. Give a massage. A massage will be a great choice if you want to improve physical intimacy. Personally giving your partner a massage is one of the best ways to make them relax and interested in you again. There are tons of videos and classes online that can teach you how to do a massage; learn them and try to apply your knowledge to your partner for more pleasurable date nights.
